Plan to go see Mission Blue at this week’s Green Lens Film Series on Thursday, Feb 22nd, at 7:00 PM at the Egyptian Theatre. The Green Lens Film Series is free and open to the public.
Legendary oceanographer and TED prize winner Dr. Sylvia Earle is on a mission to save our oceans. Mission Blue is part action-adventure, part expose of an Eco-disaster. More than 100 scientists, philanthropists and activists gather in the Galapagos Islands to help fulfill Dr. Earle’s lifelong wish: build a global network of marine protected areas, like underwater national parks, to protect the natural systems that keep humans alive. As the expedition ends, the Deep water Horizon oil well explodes. With oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, Sylvia and an environmental dream team race around the world trying to defend her ‘Hope Spots’. Watch the official trailer below and plan to go see the film this Thursday!
